"At the corner: city, place, people"
14 September - 4 November 2018
The first Center for Contemporary Culture "Tselinniy" will open in Almaty in 2020. But the starting point for the new center will be on 14th of September 2018, with the opening of the architectural exhibition Beginning, as well as an exhibition devoted to the contemporary art of Central Asia.
The exhibition At the corner: city, place, people, unfolded on two floors of the former nightclub in the building of Tselinniy, unites several generations of contemporary artists of Central Asia who in their work explore "urban fabric". The changes that have taken place with the building of the Tselinniy for the last 50 years have been viewed by artists as a paradigm of what is happening in the urban space of Almaty and in the whole post-Soviet space. The exhibition includes works by Erbossyn Meldibekov, Elena and Victor Vorobyov, Bakhyt Bubikanova, Alexander Ugay and Rustam Khalfin. The name of the exhibition At the corner: city, place, people indicates the meeting place of the streets, roads, prospects and generations of artists gathered in this exhibition.
